“We’re also chuffed to have some other New Zealand breweries sharing in the spoils with Schippers Brewing Company picking up three silvers and a bronze, as well as our good friends down the road, Renaissance, picking up a silver,” added Moa Founder, Josh Scott.

Danish brewery Coisbo Beer claimed the highly coveted trophy for best beer with their Russian Imperial Stout.
